In electronics we regularly use solder paste in the assembly of printed circuit boards (PCBs). This paste comes in a variety of packages, styles, types and so on. Today I look at one small tub of solder paster under the microscope. Quite literally.

Here is a really quick and dirty, non scientific comparison of a Galileo GEN1 board running Windows ™ against the same board running linux. SPI Flash version is 1.0.2. Login to windows is via telnet. Login to linux is via ssh. Time taken from power-on to login: Linux 48 Seconds Windows 68 Seconds Time taken […]
The Intel Galileo is has Arduino UNO compatibility, yet often I see queries from someone asking why their favourite Arduino Shield won’t work, or why an interface they have made which works on other Arduino boards, doesn’t work with Galileo.

My iPhone 4 has dangerously self destructed, with an unexplained bulging of the battery which broke off the rear cover and cracked the front display.
Previously I posted about using a standard UART to read and write to 1-Wire devices. In this post I look at how to read and write to these devices using Cypress PSoC devices.
I’ve assembled and coded up the LED Matrix shield that I designed. It’s running on an Intel Galieo, but should also be compatible with other Arduino UNO Compatible boards. Assembly pictures and video demos are included.
